D&AD has teamed up with publisher Taschen to create a 360-page book that celebrates ‘excellence in visual thinking’, based on the creative highlights from the last 50 years of advertising and design
In its promotional material for the new book, D&AD 50, D&AD says:
"For this special anniversary volume, each of the last 50 years is represented by a D&AD President or other key figure who shares his or her favorites from the year."
"Interspersed stories, biographies, and a timeline document the history and the development of the industry, through the experiences of the people who have been most involved with its evolution.
"From the birth of TV advertising in the sixties to the digital revolution of the 2000s, D&AD has lived through it all and helped to shape what it is today. This is the chance to explore the best from the world of creative communications over the past five decades."
D&AD 50 is available to buy now from the Taschen website, price £34.99
